After nipple reconstruction, one of my nipples sticks out further than the other. The other is almost flat. Is this common?

    After my nipple reconst i too had one that was much larger. I just has a second very easy surgery to fix it. They both match now and look great. My insurance covered it.

      Thank you so much. My plastic surgeon told me he could do that also but he wants to wait 6 months until it completely settles down to the size it will be.

      I actually waited a year. I just did want another surgery, so i waited until i was ready. I found a bra that worked and no one could tell. But now i really dont need to wear one , its awsome :)
